Tips to Spend Time With Your Children
Children want your undivided attention. When they talk, look at them and engage them in further conversation.
Listen to their music. You might begin liking it.
Ask them what they want to do. Is baseball their love? Play catch in your backyard.
Establish new family traditions. Set a specific time each week for them, such as Friday pizza nights.
Develop your family as a team. Give everyone chores. Do them together.
Make one-on-one time with each child. Kids talk more freely when they're with just one parent.
Watch television shows they choose. Then talk about them.
